Believe in yourself!

Here's a tag that I finished up this morning:

The gold!!!


  • Ranger Distress tag embossed with Tim's Roses EF
  • Inked with Color Bursts in Chartreuse, Orchid, and Fuchsia (this is a fave combo of mine...)
  • DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold Rush rubbed all over the raised portion with my finger
  • The wildflower (die by Tim, set 1 I believe) was cut from a scrap of deep blue/indigo paper and embossed with a smidge of blue Stampendous EP
  • (This morning) I added the quotation (by Tim) with a little added Glossy Accents to ensure it sticks to the embossed paper
  • (This morning) The bow is made from vintage seam binding.  I roughed it up by spraying it with a mix of Perfect Pearls and heating it thoroughly in a little teacup!  I affixed it by pinning it with one of Tim's Ideaology pins.
I'll give this to a teacher this week... they are all ready for state testing, but some of them get anxious.  But they are awesome!

I'll share this glorious tag at the following places:


  1. Beautiful shimmer to the tag, love the embossing folder and the colours of ink used, thank you for joining in at MMM.

  2. What a beautiful shine on the background. And I like how you placed the bow at one side instead of at the centre, I’ve never thought of that...

  3. Beautiful textured tag and gorgeous bow
